Athens & Olympia 5 Nights

A CHANCE TO DISCOVER THE CAPITAL CITY AND HOME OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES

This tour gives your students a chance to unearth the ancient city of Athens, Greece’s capital city along with the home of the Olympic games in classical times between the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. 

WHY VISIT ATHENS?

This tour gives students a chance to spend time in 2 ancient historic locations within the fascinating country of Greece.

Whilst in Athens, you shall get a chance to visit the alluring Acropolis and its monuments. Under the inspired guidance of the sculptor Pheidias, the rocky hill was transformed into unique monuments of thoughts and the art.

Travelling out of the city you will get a chance to explore Delphi and its attached museum, which will give students a glimpse into the ancient Greek world and beyond as the sanctuary of Apollo and the shrine of his oracle.

The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus dates back to the 4th century BC and is renowned for its unparalleled acoustics and elegant aesthetics; a wonderful place to visit.

For those interested or studying archaeology, a stop at Mycenae is a must. A fortified late Bronze Age city and the centre of the Mycenaean civilization was at its peak of power, influence and artistic expression.

The ancient site of Olympia is the site of Olympic Games during classical times and were held in honour of Zeus, king of the Gods. This then inspired the beginning of the Modern Olympic Games as we know it which re-started in 1896 in its original birthplace.

This tour is packed full of wonderful sites, ruins and museums that opens the minds of students of all ages to the wonderful classical world of Greece.
